King County DOH to host Don’t Hang on to Meds webinar

May 2, 2019

The King County Heroin and Opioid Task Force invites you to a webinar to learn how prescribers and pharmacists are using the Don’t Hang on to Meds campaign to educate patients of the reasons why they should lock up the medications they take and securely dispose of medicines they no longer take/are expired. Join us to hear how a local physician and pharmacist are using campaign tools to engage patients and promote healthy and safe behaviors around medications in the home. This campaign is aimed at preventing medicine misuse, accidental poisoning, overdose, and death by reducing unintended access to medications in the home. The patient friendly materials helps providers fulfil requirements of WAC 246-919-865, enacted this year to ensure individuals know about secure medicine return and reasons for safe storage.  Free campaign tools have been adapted for both King County and statewide use in Washington. Registration is available at online.
